Camper 16

For the family, the Camper may just be the best all-around canoe available. Engineered for the kind of performance that allows parents and kids alike to feel at ease, the Camper is a general purpose canoe that is equally at home on ponds, lakes and rivers. Surprisingly fast for a 16' canoe, its on-the-water stability is also a plus when canoeing with younger children.

Flat Bottom Hull

Flat bottom canoes offer great initial stability. They tend to feel very secure on calm water but become slightly less comfortable as the waves get larger or as you lean to one side. Flat bottom canoes are great for the sportsmen and general weekend warrior looking for a solid platform.

Straight Sides

Straight-sided canoes are a compromise between flared sides (increased secondary stability) and tumblehome sides (narrower beam at deck for easier reach to water). Straight sides are a great option for most recreational users.

Moderate Rocker Icon
Moderate Rocker

From a side view the canoe has only a slight banana shape while sitting on a hard surface. Moderate rocker in a canoe means it will turn easily on the water but can also track well for short to longer distance paddling.

Molded-in Carrying Handle Canoe Decks

Also include molded-in cleats and strap eyes for an anchor system in addition to the molded in flush mount. See close up image +
